Step down ring...60mm to 55mm required.

That's a 60mm male to 55mm female, any ideas, I've looked everywhere.

Get em in the US of course, but the UK?

Failing that I'll have to use two 60-58, 58-55.

TIA.

It looks as though 60mm is a rather odd size. I looked at SRB, who normally have everything, and they have 58s and 62s but no 60s.

There are a few on eBay but only from Oz or China.

Re: Step down ring...60mm to 55mm required.

60mm is indeed an odd size, used as intermediates on some of my screw together extension tubes. I had to make do with a 58mm one, and combine it with 2 other stepping rings & a coupling ring. I eventually managed to fit the bayonet mount to a female M42 mount, now I've got another set of tubes which have 57mm intermediate threads...
